CSUN hires assistant AD

Cal State Northridge has hired Bob Vazquez as its new assistant athletic director in charge of athletic media relations.

Vazquez, a longtime and well-respected media relations director at Stanford, replaces Ryan Finney, who left CSUN over the summer to become the assistant director of sports information at UCLA.

``I'm delighted Bob will become part of Matador athletics,'' CSUN Athletic Director Rick Mazzuto said in a statement. ``His extensive experience and professionalism will enhance our media relations division.''

Vazquez spent six years as the sports information director at UC Santa Barbara, where he directed the intercollegiate publicity program before heading north to Stanford, where he was the media coordinator of several Pacific-10 championships, as well as NCAA national and regional tournaments.

``I am excited and looking forward to being a part of the Cal State Northridge athletic department family,'' Vazquez said in a statement.

``This is a dedicated and hard-working group of coaches, student-athletes and staff, and I am looking forward to helping spread the word about Cal State Northridge athletics to the Southern California community and beyond.''

Mission League triple threat

With the wrestling regular season coming to an end, many San Fernando Valley teams are polishing up for their respective league championship meets.

The Mission League championships Feb. 3 might be an intriguing event, with the possibility that three teams will share first place after league dual meets are done in less than two weeks.

Alemany of Mission Hills, Crespi of Encino and Harvard-Westlake of Studio City have 2-1 league records and are on path to finish in a three- way tie with 3-1 dual meet records.

``If the cards play out how they are supposed to, then we'll have an interesting set up for league titles,'' said Luke Carmona, Alemany's coach.

For the Mission League to finish with a three-way tie atop the standings, the Warriors must beat Chaminade of West Hills Jan. 31, and Crespi and Harvard-Westlake must win Friday.

The Celts host Brentwood and the Wolverines travel to Chaminade.

``Right now we want to taper off a little bit, loosen up and come out for CIF,'' Carmona said.

Alemany will travel to Chaminade to compete in the Best in the Valley tournament Saturday before its last league dual meet against the Eagles next week.

Harvard-Westlake travels to the Millikan of Long Beach tournament and Crespi will wrestle in the Reseda Wrestling Classic in preparation for next week's league title meets.
